How to Frame Your TV

So, I got to thinking a few weeks ago. Can't you just hear my husband groaning? Don't worry honey, it's not that bad :)

Anyway, with all the salvage shopping I do for the store, I've built up quite a collection of vintage frames; they're absolutely beautiful, but I had no idea what I was going to do with them. Then, I decided to "refresh" our bedroom and when I was done, I just couldn't get over the fact that our TV stuck out like a sore thumb in the decor. What's a gal to do? Get framing, that's what.

It really was a very simple project. First, I chose the frame that would fit best around the television set. Then, took a bit of scrap plywood I had hanging around the house and built a box to fit around the tv so that the frame had sat flush and I had something to secure it to.

Then I painted all of it with one coat of Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Graphite. That's it. That's all. Done! Now our electronics blend in perfectly with our refreshed bedroom decor.
